      But there is no way of your monitor showing you the 3D image unless your given software has some sort of anaglyph conversion mode.

          You will know if its 3D as you will see two images super-imposed and slight off set. It will basically look like a blurry image.

            Bit irrelevant since you already bought it but why do you think it's safer to backup to disk? I wouldn't really say optical media is a lot more reliable than magnetic unless you are storing them in a ridiculously safe place, out of sunlight, etc. All optical disks degrade whereas a magnetic disk is likely to last much longer. The one benefit of optical would be that if anyone broke into your house, they would be likely to go for any external hard drives but leave optical disks unless they are obviously games or something.

            If all you are worried about is a hard drive actually failing (and not really needing to recover say, a file you deleted 6 months ago), then your best option is to simply get another HDD the same size as the current one the data is on and run them in RAID1. You can add as many drives as you want and each holds a duplicate of the same data meaning there is no single point of failure.

              Why? well they will well out last my life time and that of the best HDD or SDD drive, it will save me even needing another HDD as i want to get rid of this one when i get a bigger SDD, i have had a few HDD fail in the past, although many years ago, never had a CDR or DVD-R fail one me yet

                i'll be interested to know what you think of the software, and if it is the full version, or a feature stripped OEM version that nags you to 'upgrade' constantly
